I may be pinched nerve
I have read your query.
Yes it could be a pinch nerve. But you should not ignore it.
Usually back pain
is managed with pain-killers till 1 month period. If it persists beyond 1 month, then further investigations are done.If you have a bad pain I will suggest the following:
- Back pain can be due to many reasons. You should get x-ray lumbosacral spine done in AP and Lateral done and x-ray sacroiliac joint
left side, send us report or discuss it with your doctor. Only then further management can be advised.
- Avoid heavy weight lifting pushing and pulling heavy objects, because it will further increase back pain.
- You can take medicine like painkillers + muscle relaxants by discussing it with your doctor. You may need stronger pain-killers which are available on prescription only. You can try ibuprofen
till you see your doctor.
- Apply hot packs for 30 min in morning and evening .
I hope it helps.
